Champions Livingston extend winning run to seven by beating Queen’s Park
Livingston recorded a comfortable 4-0 victory over Queen’s Park at Almondvale Stadium as the Scottish League One champions extended their winning run to seven games.
Nikolay Todorov latched on to Danny Mullen’s great ball forward to hand the home side their opener, poking it beyond the goalkeeper and into an empty net.
Mullen doubled their lead midway through the second half, while provider for the second – Declan Gallagher – claimed another assist as he set up Josh Mullin with 10 minutes remaining and Nicky Cadden completed the scoring at the death.
Alloa, who sealed their spot in this season’s play-offs with last weekend’s 6-1 mauling of Brechin, only needed one goal to claim maximum points from their 1-0 victory over Airdrieonians at Excelsior Stadium.
After a goalless first half, the visitors broke the deadlock as Jordan Kirkpatrick picked out the top corner with his 14th goal of the season after 66 minutes.
East Fife strengthened their play-off hopes as they moved up three places to third – level on 46 points alongside Brechin, Airdrieonians and Queen’s Park – after a narrow 1-0 win over Albion at Cliftonhill.
Chris Duggan set up Jason Kerr just after the hour mark and he made no mistake, firing the ball into the bottom-left corner, but Duggan then saw red as he was shown his second yellow card for alleged diving with seven minutes remaining.
Oli Shaw’s 12th-minute winner kept Stenhousemuir in with a shout of the relegation play-off spot as the basement boys completed a narrow 1-0 home victory over second-bottom Peterhead.
Brechin moved into the last play-off spot after they were held to a goalless draw against eighth-placed Stranraer at Glebe Park.
